    Hi all,

    I am curious about what generation iPod Touch you guys have. :) I have a 3rd Generaton (32GB with iOS 5.1.1), and I love it very much.

    Thanks, Alex :)

    I have the 64GB 5th with iOS 9. I only play music on mine, so all is well with it.

    I have an old first generation 32gb, got it a year before my first iPhone. For a long time it sat in a dock connected to my home stereo but I now have a Mac Mini for an iTunes server which made it obsolete. Cannot be updated beyond iOS 4.x IIRC. Battery doesn't last long.

    So it sat in the closet for almost two years. Then I got a new car this summer that included a cable with the old style connector. So the old iPod now lives in the glove box of my car tethered to the audio system. :)

    I think you have your models confused. The first gen can only get up to iOS 3.1.3. Its the second gen that gets up to 4.2.1

    I'm sure you're right, I never paid any attention to those "generation" names. Just checked, and it was purchased new in April 2008. Anyway, my point was that it's old and I had given up on it, but it now has a new life as part of my car stereo system. :)

    I have an 8GB 4th generation and recently upgraded to the 64gb 6th generation, so far I am really enjoying it (I mostly use it for music since I also have an iPhone)

    Mine was bought in 2009, and is a 64GB model. I think - though I cannot swear to it - that this makes it a Generation 5. It still works perfectly.

    According to this, the newest model available in 2009 was Generation 3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPod_Touch

    2009? That would make it a third generation. ;)

    You are absolutely right. Generation 3, it was (I just checked the model's number) and (cough, holds breath) it still works perfectly. Anyway, I bought it in late September 2009.

    Yes, thanks you; this surprised me, but you are absolutely right.

    Actually, I had not planned to buy one, - as I had distrusted the hype and sales pitch surrounding it, believing that it was a triumph of hype over substance - but an iPod classic that I had bought (a 120GB) had died while I was working abroad, still under warranty.

    Subsequently, while at home on leave, I brought it into an authorised Apple store (with the sales receipt), and, after a moment to confirm the details, I was asked whether I wanted a the device repaired, replaced, or whether I would prefer a refund.

    Anyway, I requested a replacement, to be hold that none were in the store, and I would have to wait a week or so. The problem was that I was returning to work in the Caucasus the following day, and did not expect to be back before the new year. So, I wondered about the iPod Touch, the 64GB version. They had it, but explained that there was a price difference between that and my deceased iPod classic. I explained that I was happy to pay the difference. So, I bought it, and put some music into it.

    I have to say that - the somewhat limited memory size apart (as I have a large music library) - it is an excellent iPod; the sound is superb (better than the iPod classics) and the SSD is obviously, a lot more stable than the old HDD of the iPod classic. Actually, I'm one of those who had longed for Apple to put a decent sized memory into the iPod Touch, and, now that they have done so, I may well buy one.

    You might want to listen to one before deciding. They do use different DACs now.

    Well... I just hear the difference when playing the same tracks between my devices. But you get used to it.

    2009 3rd generation 64 still playing about 15 hrs (210-240 songs) on a single full charge.
    When it goes under 200 songs per charge I will buy a new 128 gb

    I bought my blue 6th Gen 64GB iPod Touch last night. I bought it for the purpose of only playing music for me while I'm out and about. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I don't like how the music is organized there, so I went with the iPod Touch to play my music. Think it's a pretty good addition to my Apple family!

    blue 5th generation i bought for my daughter in June (about 3 weeks before 6th gen was released - still mad about that but i needed to get it for her birthday). just replaced it this weekend because the headset jack stopped working. apple simply replaced it, saying that for some reason they don't bother fixing that issue on an ipod touch. she uses it almost exclusively for netflix.
